Nkhensani Rihlampfu

South African 1988- 


South African based multidisciplinary artist, Nkhensani Rihlampfu, was born and raised in the country’s northern province of Limpopo. He studied fine arts at the Tshwane University of Technology in Pretoria and obtained a B-Tech in Fine Arts.

Over the past few years Nkhensani has been involved in numerous art programmes. Amongst the many commissioned works that he has done is a unique sculpture created from shredded South African notes for the South African Reserve Bank, as well as a painting for Constitutional Hill, which is the seat of South Africa’s apex Constitutional Court.

Nkhensani’s works have been featured in a number of group and curated exhibitions in the Absa Gallery, Grahamstown Arts Festival, and Pretoria Art Museum, to name a few. His works have been acquired by many prominent corporate and private art collections, and Nkhensani continuously grows his reputation within the industry through these partnerships.

Nkhensani has worked at Workhorse Bronze Foundry, where they were involved in casting multiple artist’s sculptures including
William Kentridge’s bronze pieces. In addition to this, Nkhensani has also worked with other prominent South African artists such as Nelson Makamo, Nandipha Mntambo, and Louis Olivier.

In 2019, Nkhensani presented his first solo exhibition where he transported the exhibition goer through a margin of breadth between the world we perceive and the truth that remains unseen. Furthermore, RMB Turbine Art Fair honoured Nkhensani with the Feature Artist exhibit at the 2019 fair, and he won the prestigious Absa L’Atelier 2019 award in Pool A.
